I know something's wrong with me. I don't know how to ask for help, but I want help. I know that if I tell my mom I'm depressed, she will tell me I'm over thinking or over reacting. But I know I'm not. I've been depressed for as long as I can remember, but it's getting worse and worse everyday. I no longer make plans with friends. I feel to tired to do anything anymore. I'm failing multiple classes. I eat way too much, then try to starve myself to lose weight. I do cut myself on a daily basis. I was bullied when I was younger, and still do. I hate my appearance. I hate my personality. I hate everything about me. My dad committed suicide when I was 5, and I don't know why. I don't know if depression runs in my family, but I know I'm depressed. I've gotten close to suicide almost 4 times. I don't want to feel this way anymore. Someone please help me.
Katie - You need to see your family docr or school nurse RIGHT AWAY. This is a voice of experience talking. I let my depression symptoms get the best of me, and before long, I was a train wreck just waiting to happen. Once you see and talk to someone, you will immediately feel better. Get help now. You've got too much life to enjoy. enginedoc
